Lampard’s men head to the game following a 4-4 draw against Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
“Ross (Barkley) is not in the squad tomorrow [against Crystal Palace], he has an ongoing issue,” Lampard was quoted by Metro UK as saying at his pre-match press conference.
“Mason (Mount) is in the squad. We will give him another 24 hours and make a call on that.”
Lampard added: “Rudiger had an operation, he is out for three weeks and then we will see about his match fitness. Hopefully in three weeks’ time we will know more. You do well to cope without big players.”
The kick-off time for the match is 1:30pm.
